Judy Wilkins-Smith

Book - 2022

"In Decoding Your Emotional Blueprint, transformational and systemic coach Judy Wilkins-Smith helps readers break free from the patterns that hold them back so they can create lives of greater meaning and impact. "While everyone knows that we inherit our physical DNA from our ancestors," she writes, "few people realize that we also inherit multiple generations of patterns of decisions, thoughts, feelings, actions, and mindsets-an 'emotional blueprint' that is deeply... unconscious, yet faithfully repeated." According to Wilkins-Smith, one of the most effective ways to shift these unconscious, inherited patterns is by working with systems dynamics and constellations. With Decoding Your Emotional Blueprint, she makes the profound implications of these models immediately accessible to anyone searching for personal healing and transformation. Drawing from neuroscience, epigenetics, genealogy, and quantum physics, Wilkins-Smith shares a variety of strategies and practices that will help you detect hidden and multigenerational patterns, recognize their purpose, and then break the cycles, to create an extraordinary life"--Provided by publisher.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Leadership coach Wilkins-Smith debuts with an eye-opening exploration of how nature and nurture shape personality. The author draws on her leadership workshops to encourage readers to "discover and face the invisible patterns you've been loyally following that have been handed down to you by your ancestors." Doing so, she suggests, will help one learn to change these habits. For example, Wilkins-Smith tells of a client who struggled to make an impression at work before he realized that taking care of his younger siblings while growing up gave him a tendency to put others first, and that he should start prioritizing his own career. To reveal one's family patterns, Wilkins-Smith urges readers to ask themselves such questions as "Do your family members have similar events, thoughts, and experiences in their lives (e.g., the women all leave)?" She also recommends positioning note cards representing family members in a manner of one's choosing and then analyzing the layout to uncover one's feelings about one's relatives. The client stories brim with keen psychological analysis, and the exercises effectively package the author's workshop techniques for solo use. The result is an insightful and informative guide to better knowing oneself. (June) Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly.

Break free from the patterns that hold you back and open to your most extraordinary life with systemic dynamics and family constellations work.Everyone knows we inherit our physical DNA, but few people realize we also inherit our emotional DNA—an ancestral blueprint of thoughts, feelings, and actions handed down to us through multiple generations of repeated family patterns. In Decoding Your Emotional Blueprint, transformational coach Judy Wilkins-Smith shares the good news that no matter what blueprint you’ve been given, you have the power to change your life.Wilkins-Smith adeptly guides readers through both the art and science of creating lasting transformation by working with systemic dynamics and constellations. As she explains, all of the different systems we belong to—our families, organizations, careers, religions, clubs, cultures—subtly determine how we think, feel, choose, and act. When we illuminate our invisible allegiances to these systems, we’re able to make new choices and watch a world of possibilities open before us. Decoding Your Emotional Blueprint brings you a wealth of hands-on strategies and practices so you can learn to detect hidden and multigenerational patterns, recognize their purpose, and then transform old cycles to create an extraordinary life. Throughout the book, you’ll:• Learn to make the invisible visible by decoding your use of language and your body’s messages• Identify the gifts that are often hidden within the pain and messiness of a family or other system• Understand the physical, emotional, and neurological changes that happen through systemic work• Break free from the immensely powerful meta patterns that keep you in a systemic trance—including gender, war, natural disasters, and religion• Explore the ways your unconscious patterning impacts every area of life—relationships, money, health, and moreWith inspiring stories of real transformation, fascinating explanations of the science behind this work, and practical tools and exercises, Wilkins-Smith will expand your idea of what you think is possible for your life and help you make your greatest visions a reality.
